Hey Folks- This is Aaron from Beansprout Musical Instruments. We have taken over production and distribution of the familiar brass wire arm rests. Our arm rests are reproductions of vintage ones, suitable for most open back banjos. They are made to match an 11" rim, but can be carefully bent to fit other sizes. Proudly made in the USA from USA materials. Currently available in raw brass only (nickel plating next batch). Yes, they are more expensive than the old imported ones, but it’s important to us to keep production in the USA. Please see the video below for installation instructions.

Here is a retail link: thebeansprout.com/store/brass-...banjo-uke

If interested in placing a wholesale order, please contact us at info@thebeansprout.com.

I received a wire armrest samples from Aaron a few weeks ago. They look great! I am glad that he took up having those parts made. When my manufacturer's representative retired 4 years ago, I knew there would be a time I would either have to find a new wire armrest manufacturer, or discontinue the product. Not having any time to develop new products had me discontinuing sales to other shops and selling the last few I have only to retail customers.

Aaron saw that the demand is there and will be able to provide them for many years to come.
